Welcome future IA Tigers!

We are so excited that you are considering Innovation Academy as part of your educational journey!



How do you know if Innovation Academy is the right fit for your student? Innovation Academy students:

At Innovation Academy, we design together, we grow together, and we innovate together. Students are challenged by committed staff and caring community partners who come together to learn through cross-content projects like renovating a school bus into a mobile medical bus, analyzing statistics of our own health and physical well being, or designing mosaics to represent our identity as a new community.

Common Questions

Launch Week

First Week

Launch week is a vital part of the Innovation Academy experience! This is a time when students are able to meet their Tiger Time teacher and classmates, engage in mini-projects together, and reengage as a part of the Innovation Academy community. Here is the tentative schedule:

  • Monday: 9th graders and new IA students will experience Launch Day together, touring the school, understanding the schedule, and engaging in design challenges!
  • Tuesday through Thursday: All Innovation Academy students engage in mini-design challenges with their Tiger Time teacher and classmates. This allows students to review the Design-Thinking principles and Project-Based Learning standards while building community and connections with each other.
